The happy group of watermelon eaters are (l to r) Andrew Fyfe, James Walsh, Larine Gemmell , Dick Walsh, and Mildred Fyfe.

Pat Van Eaton says, “Andrew Fyfe was married to my great aunt Minnie Boettcher. Mildred was their youngest daughter. Larine was Andrew  and Minnie’s granddaughter by Violet Fyfe Gemmell, their middle daughter. Dick and  James are the sons of Agnes Fyfe Walsh their oldest daughter.

Minnie and Andrew were married in Alder. He was formally  in the British Army in The Grenadier Guards  and was a Buckingham Palace guard — the kind that wore the tall bear skin hats and marched in Queen Victoria’s funeral  procession.”
